Backtrack Review

Anastasiia Sidorova’s Mercédès sounded luscious. They presented vivid, caring companions to Carmen without any of the usual “Shark Girls” shtick

Astonishing Tenor & Mezzo

In the role of Olga, mezzo-soprano Anastasiia Sidorova’s sparkling demeanor did much to brighten heavier moments. This was felt early on in her opening duet with Tatiana; the distant, dreamier expression of the latter was tenderly chided by the smirk Sidorova wore as her lines alternated between filling her sister’s silences and weaving into a languid yet lovely unison. The final cadence of this number was given a resigned, almost sighing quality thanks to the presence of the clarinet stepping slightly forward in the musical texture. Through her arioso in the next scene, Sidorova’s Olga carried herself through open and delighted gestures, relishing in the limelight, but it was her moments with Lensky where she gleamed with a more gentle, and alluring, charm.

Astonishing Tenor & Mezzo

Pride of place goes to the secondary couple, Lensky (Evan LeRoy Johnson) and Olga (Anastasiia Sidorova). Johnson especially was notable, his honeyed tenor caressing the long lines of Lensky’s gorgeous, celebrated aria. Sidorova has a wonderfully plangent, deep mezzo and very clear diction.

Astonishing Tenor & Mezzo

Sidorova’s “Lyubasha’s Aria” from the same opera, her carefully modulated voice and alternately flashing and stricken eyes drawing an unsparing picture of the young woman’s jealousy and doubt, was equally masterful.
